This highly anticipated feature allows users to convert any PDF into a Microsoft Word document so they can analyze and edit it with the powerful tools of Drafting Assistant. This is particularly useful when a user wants to closely examine an image-based PDF received from opposing counsel using tools like Flags & Links and TOA Builder.

This feature is available to all WestlawNext Canada users through Drafting Assistant.
